in the obama white house as an economic top advisor. so we know that for the past three years, growth in america has fallen well below, really, what the congressional budget office, our experts, have predicted. these studies show our debt is hurting the economy now and that increased spending and more debt must end now. it cannot be contended any longer that it is good for america to borrow more and spend more. we cannot borrow more to spend more. somebody compared that to taking a bucket in one end -- the deep end of the swimming pool and filling it up and going to the shallow end and pouring it in. the borrow to spend and you drop some along the way, truth be known. we must grow the economy, not keep growing the government and certainly not keep growing the debt. so i believe we all know this. i think the american people know it. and we in congress have a responsibility to honestly confront this challenge and put our country on the right path. and, as we've learned, we actually don't have to cut spending. all we really need to do is allow the spending to increase, but allow it to in
. they got discouraged. john louis said if it wasn't for freedom summer, barack obama wouldn't be in the whies how white house. 40 years from now our children are going to see a better criminal defense public defense system because of you. so our lawyers are changing the world. public defenders are changing the world everyday and you don't realize it because you are caught up in this wrath of injustice. part of it is supporting the public defenders to advocate with stories to try to get the resources that we need and to ultimately build a movement where the voices are too loud. you can't ignore the voices saying. remember what gideon said, this is a civil rights issue and we need to shame the country into stepping up to the plate. >> if anyone wants to learn more about gideon's promise i have borrow brochure. the website is gideon's promise.org. >> can you tell us about your personal story ? >> my personal story came in 1991. i was convicted of second degree murder of shooting into an occupied car and attempted murder. it all erupted from the area i was from. i was from the
the job on immigration. speaking during a citizenship ceremony at the white house, president obama stressed the importance of getting something done. >> we have known for years that the immigration system is broken, not doing enough to harness the ingenuity of those who work hard to find a place here in america, and after avoiding the problem for years, the time has come to fix it once and for all. the time's come from the comprehensive, sensible immigration reform. lou: the president went on to put a time line on the issue saying he wanted congress to debate immigration reform next month, and that he wants a bill to sign as soon as possible. he's rallying support for gun control, and new york city mayor michael bloomberg is picking 7:the slack, pumping $12 million of his own money into a national ad campaign trying to persuade senators to support expanded background checks, and cbs learned the hard way not to mess with american's veterans or my fox news colleague. the network angered many when an episode of the "amazing race" featured wreckage of an american b [laughter] 5-- b-52

"back in the day" and someone says it to imply how different it was back then and how they were in the center of the activity back then. >> dana: we use it to get bob in the conversation. >> greg: most people say "back in day" weren't involved. like in the '90s, back in day, i was on a couch. >> eric: there is no way you haven't banned that phrase yet. >> greg: i haven't. >> dana: i say it a lot. greg someone tested me and said pumpkinseeds are great for scraping parasites out of your body. >> dana: please forgive me. it's the memphis tigers, not michigan. i looked down and saw a big "m." >> kimberly: i wondered about that. >> dana: here is my one more thing. do you hate to see signs
proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein, this is a big deal, and you're here on this show to prove it is a big deal. you would never come out this late if this was
and there is a reason why it's happening. secular progressives are running wild with president obama and the white house. they feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. the goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. for example, in canada, in china, a woman can have an abortion for any reason at any time. secular progressives want that here. but traditional forces in america are in opposition. therefore, in this country, you can't terminate a baby without to be born without a damn good reason. if you do abort a latham late term baby you can be charged with murder. sp's hate that in scandinavia there are laws that say you cannot criticize minorities and if you do, you could be arrested. secular progressives want laws like that here. also, of the legalization of drugs well underway in many places. and that is the secular cause. so, if the far left can marginalize santa and the easter bunny. if they can tell the children those symbols are obsolete and unnecessary, they then set the stage for a totally secular society in the future. and that's what
. this was a somewhat successful trip according to some white house officials for president obama. they feel that president obama has encouraged the israeli public to believe that president obama is actually on their side and that there is an unbreakable alliance as the israelis put it between america and israel. that being said, the skeptics still remain on both sides as israelis as well as palestinians. many feel that president obama's visit was symbolic. it may not negotiate any peace when it comes to the region. although there is still some hope at least that president obama and the obama administration will get involved and actually help in negotiating a two-state solution. >> we brought you the president's unscripted remarks at the top of the show. how is that being received in the israeli press about the children of the palestinians? >> reporter: many israelis, it depends on who you talk to, really. the israelis, they, too, are very divided when it comes to the palestinian issue. many israelis agreed with president obama and they do feel that there should be a two-state solution. that
appearances it was a status quo returning us to the division of power obama in the white house, democrats have controlled the senate and the republicans in the house for. but appearances can be deceiving and they are. the most important reality of that election is that the republican to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not reworded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not reworded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reworded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves, and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition so that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems, but there is going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice with one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> too familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norman borkenstein it's even worse than it looks. this i
. >> this is barack obama's first visit here as president. no expense is being spent, and no amount of red, white, and -- no expense is being scared. three years ago, benjamin netanyahu publicly lectured president obama about the realities of middle eastern politics in his own office. the president looked on ashen face. spokesman are said to regard the other with suspicion, and despite recent efforts to dispel that perception, there is still no special chemistry. >> they had issues. i can recall the issues. there was some kind of tension between both sides, but even though they seem to say we must understand, we must remember, but behind personal feelings, there are interests. >> the state of the economy and social affairs was a big issue in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getti
for next year. meanwhile the sequester cuts start to kick in and president obama is getting flack for canceling white house tours. now there is word -- no it's not. all right. so thanks so much. we'll check in with our kelly o'donnell on mark sanford. we just showed you the video. kelly, you're there for me, right? >> reporter: i can hear you, thomas. i'm not sure you can see me. >> yes, i can see and hear you and it looks like you have beautiful trees in south carolina behind you. let's talk about south carolina. it is primary day down there. mark sanford been getting a lot of press and a lot of the coverage i've been reading about is this is going to be a street fight for how this will advance. >> well, this is one of those occasions, thomas, where the sheer number of candidates makes this so unpredictable. it's rare to have an opening like this in south carolina politics where people in office tend to stay a long time. so 16 republicans jumped in, including the former governor, and his case is particularly noteworthy because he had the very public personal affair and that was s

. that effort take a different tone on a specific issue today. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and reports from jerusalem. >> president obama spent a second day in jerusalem showing he is mending fences with israeli leaders to get upclose look at the dead sea scrolls and later trying to go around the leaders to appeal to the young people of israel to talk up peace. >> look to a future in which jews and muslims and christians can all live in peace and greater prosperity in this holy land. >> while also holding out the threat of war. again, vowing that the u.s. will have israel's back. by threatening possible military hip hop action military action against iran. >> all options are on the table. we will do what we must to prevent nuclear armed iraq. >> one day after talks with obama, perez agreed to exclusive interview with fox news and declared he beliefs his american counterpart is prepared to bomb iran if necessary. >> america is really looking for peace. but if somebody threatens peace, america is playing chicken. >> reporter: they hosted mr. ob
barack obama has let jordan at the end of his visit to the middle east. the white house had set low expectations for this trip. the main purpose seemed to be reasewering israel that the u.s. is a committed ally. looking back now on president obama's four-day tour. >> looking at the pictures you might think president obama was simply on holiday, touring the ancient city of petra in jordan. in israel, marveling at the dead sea scrolls. but these visits were carefully crafted events meant to send a message to israelis about his correction -- connection to the land they believe dates back to biblical times. the support is believed to be what pushed israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkish prims recep tayyip erdogan about the raid. supporters at the israeli expandoes killed nine turks aboard an aid ship carrying activists trying to end the blockade against the -- against the gaza strip. >> it's in the interest of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order. >> the entire focus of the president's trip was to strengthe

: if you look at this, could president obama reinstate white house tours if he wanted to? 63% say, yes he could. >> of course he could. martha, there's no question he could. okay, here's $380 million i got you right there. martha: that's my point. >> strike that. the other point in this, in my office budget, martha, last year i gave back 21% of my budget. are you delling me the white house can't find funds within its budget to allow schoolchildren to see the white house? it is really ridiculous when you think about it, that they can't find funds within their existing budget. i know they could if they tried. martha: we also talked about the overlapping agencies. i played yesterday a sound bite of the president in his own state of the union address talking about how three different agencies dealt with salmon. and we looked it up to try to figure out if that was still happening and it is still happening. in many of the case he cited those agencies have grown in their responsibilities, not been cut. what can be done about all of the overlap and redundancy? >> here's what can be done. since i'

obama on what the white house is pushing in reaction to the tragedy in newtown. if joe biden said, yeah, the assault weapons ban, let's being honest, it's not going anywhere, i think it would have somewhat a chilling effect on the momentum and the push broadly to get something done. he is the public cheerleader, the cheerleader has to frankly cheer. he has to say, i think this is still possible. i think joe biden, look joe biden spent a long time in the senate. he knows in his heart of hearts, the assault weapons ban is almost certainly doomed. he doesn't want to jeopardize the other pieces, high-capacity magazines. maybe broaden background check. universal background checks. he wants to keep those in play. i think that's why you're seeing him sort of put a brave face on. >> and i want you to play a little bit of the sound of that joint appearance by mike bloomberg and joe biden today on guns. >> even though restrictions on military-style weapons will not be part of the bill that goes to the floor of the u.s. senate, it will get a vote by the full senate as an amendment to the bill. and
